As Reid mentioned recently (http://gamescc.rbkdesign.com/03.20.06_gdc.php)  after meeting up with Jonathan Hassell at the BBC, the legal aspect in the UK may be of interest. This may well tie up with US Disability Rights legislation now or eventually. I think it would be well worth mentioning some of the BBC's pages on accessible gaming. A few links here:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/games/index.shtml - main portal to the BBC's games - search on "Switch Games"

http://www.bbc.co.uk/ouch/closeup/gaming.shtml - Accessible Gaming page
http://www.bbc.co.uk/ouch/closeup/switchgaming_guideto.shtml - Switch Gaming page (loads of good links - including to us)

  Hey Gang

  Thanks for letting me participate at the GA dealio at GDC.  It was a good time and a real eye opener for me.  As some of you may know, I do a monthly Game Law feature for Gamasutra.com.  My next article will be on Accessibility in Games.  (Universal ??? - whatever that positive term of art was).

  Anyway, if you have some sites that you would like me to consider mentioning in the article, let me have em.  Since it is a Law column I intend to focus on 508, tax credits and ADA issues with games in public places.  May help raise awareness.
